    I don’t eat gluten. They had a gluten-free steak dinner with gf fries and some sprouts and mushrooms and the peppercorn sauce was absolutely delicious. My son had the trio sliders and said they were very good. The spot on the main street was great to people watch and the restaurant was comfortable and airy. I would definitely go back and recommend to others.

    Hiccup on arrival when The Huxley had no notification of your booking (made through Open Table). My friends who arrived after me were sent upstairs to Kyloe despite my showing the confirmation email. However, once friends found me, everything else was excellent. Food presented well and of good quality. Would return

    really nice food and service lovely decor all been refurbished recently. Only thing, didn’t have much atmosphere it went very quiet, lots of empty tables which you wouldn’t have seen a year or two back.A lot of Edinburgh venues with similar menus have offers on which might explain this . I think people are counting their pennies so Huxley might have to think about it

    Booked during the day for drinks but we also ended up having some of their lighter bites. Drinks choice was plentiful and the quality of drinks was very good. We had the halloumi and highlander loaded fries which were both tasty. Service was frequent and attentive. We were tucked away in the corner at the window which we were warned could get hot on a sunny day. The seats were fine if not a little distanced from the main part where there was a bit more ambience. Depends on your preference really. Overall a good stay and we will be back.

    The service was the highlight of the night. It’s funny how so many establishments seem to not understand that. It was quick, nice, thoughtful. Really fantastic. The food was ok, glad we took a recommendation to have some small plates because they were the best bit. I like the idea that noise is “energetic”. In fact it was so noisy for a while I couldn’t hear anyone at my table speak. Eventually the raucous crowd left though and we could have a pleasant evening.

    Hi Rebecca, I am delighted the service was the highlight of your visit. We pride ourselves on our warm and friendly service from our team, it really means a lot to us your comments! Glad yous all had a wonderful evening and can't wait to see you again soon! Have a great week! Best, The Huxley
